Perspective . . . perspectives

Good Morning, God! Here’s a photo of me in Tucson. I was walking with my wonderful daughter, Sandy. I’d stopped to gaze UP at a giant saguaro cactus. I think it is the biggest, tallest, most impressive saguaro I have ever seen.

Getting back into Sync

Good Day, God! Wow!  This midmorning I was definitely Out-of-Sync! Grumpy! Worried about so much stuff that I couldn’t keep it all straight. And this was during my Centering Prayer time, too. I know this is “to be expected” and

White Hibiscus Flowers: Appreciated or Evaluated?

Good Morning, God! Kit has been going on walks with me after dinner – it is a true gift from him – as he has often run in the afternoon. I’m grateful! But, I will admit, God, that I am

Stars, Small Drops of Water and Perspective

Good Morning, God! This photo was taken EARLY yesterday morning. I was waiting for my airport shuttle at 4:15 a.m. and looking up at the moon. The Portofino Hotel has a lovely fountain in front and the plumes of water
